  1. 1. Technology-based Innovation in Education 2 September 2010 Øystein Johannessen Deputy Director General Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research 1
  2. 2. Outline of presentation • ICT policy • Backdrop of the report • The report • Policy issues and the road rhead 2
  3. 3. Policy Drivers for ICT in Education • To support economic growth • To support social development • To support educational reform • To support educational management and accountability • Source: Kozma, 2008 3
  4. 4. Educational Drivers for ICT in Education • Learning outcome and learning strategies • Personalisation • Variation of teaching methods • Home – school collaboration • Bridge home – school education  relevance 4
  5. 5. Relevance of technology-based innovation - directions • Determining the conditions which enable the adoption of technology • Empowering schools and teachers to generate discrete innovations at the school or classroom level • Providing support for the research community 5
  6. 6. Are we able to scale up technology-based innovations? • Change at system level seemingly does not happen. • Possible reasons for lack of systemic change: – Knowledge base – Teacher training – Incentives 6
  7. 7. Research questions • Competing concepts of technology-based school innovations? • The dynamics of technology-based school innovations from a knowledge- management perspective? • Innovation policies regarding technology in education 7
  8. 8. The Report: Topics • Web 2.0 • Digital learning resources • Monitoring and assessing ICT use in education • Research and research design 8
  9. 9. Lessons learnt (i) • Imbalance between technology investments, content, teacher training and knowledge base • Tension between technology and pedagogy • Axis between radical and incremental innovation • There is a need to balance expectations between the power of technology and feasibility of reality • Complexity of the issues involved require a multi-dimensional approach 9
  10. 10. Lessons learnt (ii) • Potential of new research disciplines (e.g. brain research) must be explored • Work on assessment too narrow • Need for social dialogue with all stakeholders • Research must be translated into meaningful guidelines for improving practice • To what extent is research evidence phased into the education and practice of teachers 10
  11. 11. Policy principles • Systemic innovation useful for assessing innovation policies • Targeted system to promote and support successful innovation and system-wide change. • A coherent knowledge base is necessary • Innovation opportunities may be lost due to lack of evalution and knowledge feedback 11
  12. 12. Axis of innovation • The Policy Axis • The Pedagogical Axis • The technology Axis • The Knowledge Axis 12
  13. 13. The Policy Axis • Horizontal coherence: Links between key policy elements • Vertical coherence: Links between key players in an educational system 13
  14. 14. Coherence between key policy elements 14
  15. 15. The Pedagocial Axis • Curriculum and Innovation • Empower the Innovators • Culture of sharing among teachers and school leaders • ICT in the pedagogical debate 15
  16. 16. The Technology Axis • Infrastructure is an enabler for access and equity • ICT support systems and capacity • Collaboration with others players in the educational systems • Increased technological diversity to be expected 16
  17. 17. Emerging technologies for learning • Cloud computing • Collaborative Environments • Game-based Learning • Mobiles • Augmented Reality • Flexible Displays • Sources: 2010 Horizon Report K-12 17
  18. 18. The Knowledge Axis • The Double Knowledge Change – Establishing a knowledge base – Effective dissemination and uptake of the knowledge base • Professional development among teachers: Effective strategies 18
  19. 19. Policy implications • Systemic approach to innovation as a guiding principle for innovation-related policies • Promote an evidence-informed dialogue on innovation • Build a coherent knowledge base about technology in education • Supplement investments in technology with efforts in monitoring and evaluation • Support relevant research • Avoid digital divides • Align or embed strategies for innovation with national/regional policies for education (Quality/Equity) 19
  20. 20. The Road Ahead • Hybrid phase: Technology AND pedagogy • Relationship between public service/formal education and non-formal education should be revisited • Need to analyze the drivers of emerging technologies • Collaboration is King! 20
  21. 21. Thank you! joh@kd.dep.no
